Corvette Racing’s return to FIA World Endurance Championship competition has been confirmed with a single-car entry for the 1000 Miles of Sebring revealed on an updated entry list.

The team made a one-off appearance at the previous round in Shanghai and will return for the Sebring event on March 15.

It will enter a single Corvette C7.R for Jan Magnussen, Antonio Garcia and Mike Rockenfeller.

Amongst the other changes on the now 35-strong entry list is Sergey Sirotkin replacing Matevos Isaakyan in the SMP Racing BR Engineering BR1 AER alongside Egor Orudzhev and Stephane Sarrazin.

The team’s other car currently has a TBA spot with a replacement for Jenson Button not yet confirmed.

Nathanael Berthon will replace Mathias Beche at Rebellion Racing, after an announcement last week which didn’t specify where Berthon would fit into the lineup.

Jackie Chan DC Racing by Jota’s new lineup of Jordan King, Will Stevens and David Heinemeier Hansson, which was announced earlier in the day, is also shown on the updated entry list.

BMW has confirmed Alexander Sims and Bruno Spengler as Team MTEK’s third drivers, while Jonny Adam will join TF Sport for its GTE-AM entry.
